Pinky Swear

IMG_7860

I was totally about to post a real-life type photo of my dining room table, or rather where the dining table is if I could find it under all the stuff. Papers, cups from last night's dinner, shopping bags, coats, scarves, and pretty much everything else that uses it as a landing strip. And the kitchen, well, you'd find the groceries that have yet to be put away.

Ivy's on the toilet. Now's where I admit that my three-year-old is still in pull-ups but she's peed in the potty all day so far, so yay!

I decided to make Rice Krispie treats and she's all "I LOVE marshmallows!" and I'm like, get back on that snazzy cushioned Diego potty seat and I'll give you one. She wants to watch a show. You can watch a show with the iPod while you're sitting on the potty. She picks her new fancy dress to wear. Great, that dress looks awesome when you're sitting on the potty. And so on and so on. I'm not giving up. Today is The Day.

Speaking of Rice Krispie treats, gluten-free, because that's how I have to gluten-free roll these days (suddenly I'm starting to feel human-like again), so, I was determined to make some how Noodles & Company makes their krispie treats. Have you ever had them? They like melt in your mouth. I figured they probably double the butter and marshmallows. But before I even got those two things out, I put the pot on the stove and then dump the entire box of Rice Krispies into it. FYI that is not how you make Rice Krispie treats.

But who needs pictures of all that? I'd rather be at the beach. Let's go to there.

These photos were taken by Keli from Kidnapped By Suburbia during her visit in October.

(Ivy's new favorite thing is "pinky swear." It's so girly and 80's and fun. We pinky swear to everything all day long. I didn't want to forget it.)

  1. Hmm, your table sounds a lot like our bar. And my sink.

    Lily will be 4 in February and she is potty trained except that she refuses to poop in the potty. So she asks for a diaper when she's ready to do that and I put one on her, because obviously I would rather change a diaper than clean poop out of underwear. It is frustrating but I know it is a battle I can't win.

    I hope Ivy continues to respond to marshmallow bribes! :)

  3. Sometimes I stop by Noodles & Co and buy 3 or 4 rice krispy treats, they're soooooo good! Let me know if your figure out the recipe!

  4. whatever works for potty training, I say go for it. I've never been to the noodle place. I will have to stop by and pick some up and try them.

  5. Yummy! Can you post the recipe?

    Good for Ivy for using the potty! Our son just turned 3 yesterday and we haven't even started potty training. He kept saying "When I'm 3 I won't use diapers" so we will see. But to be honest, he's growing up way too fast for me, and I really don't mind changing his diapers!

  6. don't feel bad about Ivy and the potty training. My daughter was 3 when she finally started peeing in the potty...and it wasn't until she was 4 that she would regularly poo in the potty...ugh! you are not alone!

  12. My daughter was almost 3 and a half when we started full on potty training. The best thing about waiting that late, is that it was when SHE was ready and she was trained in about 1 week, and by 2 weeks she was completely done having accidents. She is still in a pull up for nap time and a diaper for over night. I used to feel pressure to do things on the pediatrician's time table, or that of other mothers, then I had a second child and my confidence set in. I realized everything happens in due time...when it is right for my child...not when everyone else says it should happen. It's the same with weaning, there is not time where they should stop...it's when they are ready. Beautiful beach pictures!!!

  13. Beautiful pictures. Now craving rice krispie treats. My daughter starting using the potty when she as forty and half months old (ie almost three and half). Our kitchen is our dumping ground too. And I hope you pinky swear with Ivy every chance you get. :) Thanks for sharing!

  14. do you have a recipe for the gf krispie treats? My son David has Celiacs...

    LOL about the potty. Hope it continues to go well! (I have a 5 yr old that is not only not trained but likely won't be for a few more years... It's pull-up hell for me. )

  16. I love the pinky swear! And you're totally making me want Rice Krispy treats now. Might be hard to find here in Thailand. :/

    ReplyDelete
  17. Those exact same potty conversations will be happening here soon, I'm sure of it.

    LOVE the photos. Simply gorgeous.

  18. Even after the potty training's done, I still have the loud & long running convos from the potty. With my last, with the baby who stops being a baby faster with each passing day? I will chat all day long with those loud comments from the potty seat, and *might* even share my Rice Krispie treats with her. (I said might.)

    (And yes, the trick has GOT to be extra butter & marshmallows.)

  19. that sounds just like my dining room table...add last weeks' happy meal boxes and we have a winner.

    Don't you love looking back to October when it's already cold November? Especially when the beach is included. :)

  23. Everything looks better when you're wearing it on the potty seat. Hope today IS the day!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Maybe you can get her to pinky-swear that she will stop wearing diapers?? I would totally try it. My daughter didn't train until 3.5 but once she was ready she was ready and it was pretty easy. Hope the same for you!

  25. I just have to say I am so relieved to hear (see) you say that Ivy is still working on the whole peeing in the potty thing.I about lost it this evening over pee not making it into the potty. Big Sister had accident after accident after accident today. And she has been potty trained for over a year!!! I don't know what that is about!?!?!

  26. I have a table that looks a lot like I'm imagining yours looking right now.

    Good luck with that potty training thing.

    I love a good pinky swear.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I pinky swear to heart you for a long time if your treats are as BIG as Noodles... like the size of a piece of cake. I WANT. But I just ate a dozen homemade oreos yesterday. So. Maybe not.
